Australia / John GRIBBLE
« on: Wednesday 21 July 10 10:37 BST (UK)  »
Searching for possible refs to John in Australia!

All I know is that he was born in 1877 in Barrow in Furness, Lancashire, England - son of Samuel and Marlow Gribble.

He was in the army (Shropshire Light Infantry) from 1895 and was discharged at his own request in 1913, Victoria Barracks, Melbourne Australia

I have no sign of him since then. Did he stay in Australia?
Back in the UK, he had a wife, Priscilla and a daughter, Cherry Marlo L(avinia?); located on the 1911 census for Portsmouth

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Priscilla McCarthy
« on: Wednesday 21 July 10 10:25 BST (UK)  »
Keen to find out more about Priscilla who was born around 1878 and baptised on 10 Mar 1878, Ryde, Isle of Wight.

My main interest is in her husband, John Gribble.

He was a soldier, Shropshire Light Infantry (joined 1895), He married Priscilla in 1898 (Portsmouth) and had a daughter in 1899 called Cherry Marlo L (prob Lavinia, she was prob named after his female relatives).

I have located Priscilla and Cherry on the 1911 census for Portsmouth but there is no sign of John. I was initially told some years ago that he was killed during WW1 but only today discovered his WW1 Pension record. He left the army in 1913, in Melbourn Australia.

Did he stay there?
Did wife and daughter join him or were they 'abandoned?

questions, questions

Nottinghamshire / Mary Bugg
« on: Tuesday 30 December 08 09:00 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone have access to baptism records for Newark??

We have a christening mug for Mary Rowe, late Bugg giving a date of birth as 8 Nov 1785, Newark, Nottinghamshire

despite best efforts, I haven't yet tracked her or our links to Newark, since our Buggs seem to hail from South Normanton/Sutton in Ashfield.


Lincolnshire / Wilsons of Stamford: silversmiths and clockmakers
« on: Saturday 23 February 08 15:01 GMT (UK)  »
I'm doing some research into a Wilson family from Stamford, who made and repaired clocks

Does anyone have links with Joseph T Wilson, 1824-1874;
he was married to Fanny and had several children including Arthur Ralph (again a watchmaker - halifax) and Charles E (a singer!)

Apparently there are others; mostly having workshops in All Saints, Stamford- including Ralph Wilson (1729-1829; died in Peterborough)

Any info appreciated
